. right. i guess the political's latest obama opened up a national lead there 50-47. but i think as you say before that's not is the important headline. what is important is obama is picking up in florida and colorado for instance. >> yeah. it's the electoral count and the other problem is -- my lord 50 years from now, presidential historians are going to study the romney campaign. it's not possible to do more wrongs than have been done in the last couple of days. cold fusion? that was debunked 20 years ago. why don't the windows in the airplane open?

for president you see it right there, john, 50% for president obama, 44% for romney. that's a nice lead for obama in the key battleground state of ohio. if you take a look at florida, you see right now in our poll of polls the average among the most recent polls in florida, 49% for obama, 45% for romney. the question to you, john, can romney win without winning ohio and florida? >> in a word, wolf. i took a walk over here to show. the answer is no. you just mentioned ohio and florida. states the president carried four years ago. states governor romney very much needs to win this time. go to the electoral map to show you why. final six weeks, 237 electoral votes strong or leaning the president's way. these are the toss up states. the golden states. forget the rest of them. if the president can keep that lead and carry florida, if the president can keep that lead and carry ohio, the race is to 270, wolf, that would be in two words game over. >> gloria, if you look at the strength that the president has in these states, you see something fascinating. >> it is. i call it the empathy questio
, but in all of the major swing states president obama's got a lead right now. mitt romney's got to find a way to turn that around, turn it around in the debates, and maybe the tax cut issue that you're talking about will be one tool in that arsenal. back to you, larry. >> many thanks to john harwood. now for some reason on the trail today, mitt romney said he's going to dial back on taxes. >> individual income taxes are the ones i want to reform, make them simpler, bring the rates down. by the way, don't be expecting a huge cut in taxes because i'm also going to lower deductions and exemptions. >> all right. i don't get any of that. i'm not sure what his message was. let me say this. household incomes are down over 8%, another 1% in august alone reported this morning. the labor force, shrinking, poverty way up, president obama himself offers no middle class tax cuts, he just wants to extend them, not new ones. there's no answers to this. it's mitt romney who has got to stay on the pro-growth message, take-home pay. take-home pay. i talked about it the last couple of nights, wrote a column on

weeks. i kind of thing he can. i hear folks on the left and right saying barack obama's got it locked up and i have this rung debate with governor spitzer. i said every time you say president obama has this locked up democrats will stay at home. if you think that you're going to stay home because barack obama has got the whole thing sown up, you are the problem with democracy. you are a barnacle on the dingy of freedom. it's more important than ever to get out and vote. we will be taking your calls all morning long at 866-55-press. we want to know your thoughts on all this stuff. first, i want to talk about what happened last friday on fox news. for those of you who lived in california where i did for about 11 years or so, freeway chases are nothing new on the news. every time someone robs a stuckey's, helicopters follow the vehicle. what happened on friday was rather tragic. fox news was covering this and fox news to be fair, isn't the only cable news channel isn't the only cable channel that drops everything to follow chases. cnn has done it as well. a man named caesar romero was engag
before. >> right. and that's the issue. the republicans have backed off this whole idea of obama as a job killer. they used to use that terminology. they tend not to now only because they've seen this coming. but that would be the strongest argument now that the jobs are not of the same quality. but in terms of numbers, this was a very big argument for the republicans six months ago and prior to that that more jobs -- in fact, the way they like to say it, wolf, you've probably heard it many times before there were more people working on the first day of president obama's presidency than at any other point. that's the way they'd like to say it. bottom line it was a small milestone but an important one for the president. >> now, the other number we're looking at is gdp growth in the last quarter. it went up but not by much. >> right. so the way you measure growth in the economy is how much it grew versus the same quarter, the same three months the year before. and the most recent quarter that we have numbers for is the second quarter of this year. we had thought that the economy grew 1.7%,
